Brawny vs. Bounty

Brawny paper towels were on sale this at Shop-Rite so I bought a six pack.

You know how you see the commericals for paper towels, how you can rinse them out and use them over and over again? I never really believed it but tonight I decided to put the Brawny paper towel to the test.

Much to my surprise and delight, my one square of Brawny cleaned the following:

1) All the kitchen counters (with Windex)
2) The stove top
3) The casserole dish in which I made roasted sweet potatoes
4) The wooden spoon I used to stir the roasted sweet potatoes
5) A measuring cup
6) The griddle pan on which I made a London broil
7) The sink
8) The sink strainer
9)The wall behind the sink where I splashed spaghetti sauce the night before
10) And finally, the Brawny paper towel, still with plenty of life left in it, wiped down the stainless steel garbage can before I threw it away

I've always been a Bounty girl. You know, Bounty, the quicker, picker, upper.

But Brawny totally kicked Bounty's ass.

What do you use?

Bounty select-a-size, although I'm using paper towels less and less and using cloth rags more and more.

Wow. I have to admit I'm really impressed with your Brawny experiment. I usually buy the cheapest brand available and then tear them in half for napkin-esque use. Like jenontheedge, I'm trying to use them less, but I just can't give them up completely yet. They're so convenient when you make a little mess. Plus, I just don't have enough kitchen towels to go sans paper towels. Maybe I should consider eliminating that excuse with a trip to Target...

Whatever's on sale. :-)

I'm the Costco queen - I buy Kirkland, because I can get it in bulk and it's inexpensive. And they work pretty darn well also!

I don't use them at home. I buy these white flour sak cloths at Target that are good for everything. You can even use them as napkins when eating in the living room because they're so big they cover the major drop areas and they're bleachable.
